A four-minute videoblog of last week’s whirlwind tour in Estonia….

WE wake up late. Not sure if it was because of the wind, but neither of us slept very well last night. I woke up at 4am and didn’t get back to sleep until well after 6am. Very unusual!

Good news is the lurgy has subsided considerably. I rush into the office to pack some merch and print postage  before breakfast, then fire off some emails about the US tour.

I have a long list of things to do as a result of lying awake earlier…posters for September’s shows down south, web stuff for various folks, invoices to send out. Jeez.

Once I’ve got through some of the stuff I head to the office to print set lists for tomorrow’s (Tuesday) show with Bob Wayne at the O2 ABC in Glasgow…plus overprint a batch of postcards with forthcoming show info for the merch desk.

Then I head for the studio. A new radio pack/transmitter for my guitar’s wireless system arrived earlier and needs to be set up….I panic when it doesn’t work then find a rogue RF setting hidden behind the usual menu options. Sorted. Phew.

Both the old radio packs work, bit only just. They’ll do for emergencies but can’t be depended on.

I add captions to the Estonia video blog and upload it to my YouTube channel (see it here) manage to find the Good Moonshine video and restring the guitars ready for tomorrow.

Martin arrives just as I finish – we go for a walk in the evening sun and discuss a photo job he’s asked me to do. Back home we have a glass of wine, he heads off and I make dinner.

Got an early start tomorrow, so best get things in order….
